Artist: Dante

Tour Dates: T.B.A.

Following the critical acclaim for their first full album release, Wake, which was hailed by Artrocker as “…paving the way for modern Celtic music”, Dante are taking new material out on the road in the lead up to their second full LP, due for release later this year.

The sporadic tour has already seen Dante play their first East Coast U.S. shows with dates in New York and Philadelphia.

Dante are currently working on the release of their second album with Producer, Andy Monaghan (of Frightened Rabbit) and the release is scheduled for late 2016 (UK) and early 2017 (mainland Europe and U.S.).


Dante have an ability to instinctively span genres with a flair and panache that many of their contemporaries would be proud of. On the critically acclaimed debut album, Wake, the band illustrated their capacity to create traditional Celtic tunes that fit into a modern landscape.

Following an impressive two years of festival appearances and wide ranging support from the likes of Beat Surrender, Artrocker Magazine, God Is In The TV, The Scottish Sun, Rock N Reel and being named in The Herald’s Top 50 Albums, the band are beginning tour again, road-testing new material from their second album, due for release in 2016.

Dante haben ein Talent dafür, Genre mit Leichtigkeit und Elan miteinander zu verschmelzen das viele ihrer Zeitgenossen stolz machen würde. Auf dem von der Kritik gefeierten Debütalbum 'Wake' demonstriert die Band mit spielerischer Leichtigkeit den Balanceakt traditionelle keltische Wurzeln in einer modernen Soundlandschaft zu verankern.

Nach zwei beeindruckenden Jahren auf britischen Festivalbühnen und mit dem weitreichenden Support von Beat Surrender, Artrocker Magazine, God Is In The TV, The Scottish Sun und Rock N Reel, sowie einer Platzierung in den Top 50 Alben im The Herald, steht die Band mittlerweile wieder in den Startlöchern um Material für ihr 2016 erscheinendes zweites Album 'on the road' auszuprobieren.
